Olympus MJU Mini Digital S

 

Olympus MJU Mini Digital S Review. One of the smallest and neatest digital cameras on the market. You should have no problem fitting this camera into a very small pocket.

Natural colours ; Design and style

Red eye ; Shutter lag ; Short zoom capability

"The Olympus MJU Mini Digital S has a unique and very stylish design. This is backed up by the ability to take good photos. There are a couple of downsides to consider, shutter lag and only a 2x optical zoom lens."

Olympus Mju Mini S

 

A stylish, water-resistant ultracompact camera that produces average photos.

All-weather construction ; Stylish design ; Broad selection of scene modes

No optical viewfinder ; Zoom limited to 2X ; Slow autofocus in dim light ; Average image quality

Of course, the Mju Mini S doesn't have a lot of photo quality to spare, with a level of image detail that's just average for its ultracompact 5-megapixel class. We saw visual noise in our shots even at ISO 64, and ISO 400 is very noticeably noisy. JPEG...

Olympus Stylus Verve S review: Olympus Stylus Verve S

 

Olympus Stylus Verve S

All-weather construction; stylish design; broad selection of scene modes.

No optical viewfinder; zoom limited to 2X; slow autofocus in dim light; average image quality.

A megapixel bump and improved performance update the original Verve, but this stylish camera retains its predecessor's limited zoom range and average image quality.
